Mr. Warren left Lis c.niiating-room at the Lour of
one, to go home to dinner. fie sauntered leistrely
along, for he knew by long experience tint dinner
never waited for him. As he tertiei the last cor

after vie) a collision, instantly tecognized the other
as an old acgitaintane7.

By this time tdr. Warren reaClied his own doord
and, with 110030 Keret misgivings, turned the koyil
and invited Isis friend into his small but comfortably!
furnished house. Gial he. was, ind eGi , to meet(

been quite as well pleased if it had been after dinner.l
He would have felt easier could be have prepared

part, he would have kilted the fitted calf, with greil
rejoicing; but to set wife, children nonce and table;
in a hinpitable tune, required more time than lr

Mr. Warren thought it prudent to close the par
lor doors after him, that all unnecessary communi
cation with the rest of the house . might be cu► off.
His first visit was to the kitchen, to ascertain which
way the wind blew there. If Betty, the old family
sernnt and maid-cf-all-work, was in good humor,
he hadJiule to fear. No one could better meet an
exigency, ry,ben she bad a mind to the work. He
opened the door gently. 'Well, Betty," said he, in

"Have you anythioi for dessert?" was asked; le

Mr. Warren said co More; he would not urge the
matter. He made up his mind to dine without her;
and f with a sigh, lie slowly retnrned to the parlor.
Had he spoken out his honest feelings, he would
have said: What a Misfortune it is for a young
man to have an ailing wife! My servants rule, my
children are neglected, my house is in disorder, ‘ my
wife dues not like it be-cruse I du not make a fuss
over her all the tin: a, an 1, so nething is the matter
continually; if it, is not ma, thin, it is another—
anj I am weary of it:"
He found his friend still in the aria chair, busily
reading a scrap-book which was on the table. Fun
-danced in his eyes and trigeheir at Me - ebriiiirs .f hi.
mouth; and as sii,on as he caught sight of Warren+
he burst into a merry peal of laughter. Warren
could not resist it, and he laughed full live minutes
before he knew what the j Ike was: It was only
romething in the scrap-book which brought to re
membrance an old old scrape they .had together—
tit:l:the laugh worked like a charm with him. His
family troubles seemed to vanish before it, Eke
mists in the morring,. A mere manly c]orage was
aroused in him; be was a better and a sirouvr man.
"We are not going-to starve yoo out, C;sarl7y,"'

• Muth to his delight, the bell ran. He' was
saved the trial of beariling the lion twice in hi, den.
As he was going ta the "dinning-room with his
;friend, a troop of ill-dressed and noisy children
;plashed by them, end hurried in great disor&r to
their !eat.. Mr. MOrton spoke to them, but they
}hung their heads. He rias somewhat embarrassed.
He felt that he - oughtto take some notice of them,
;and yet It seemed As if it would spare his friend's
;feelings not to notice them. lie took hold of the
wrong horn of the dilemma.
"Which of them looks like the mother, Harry'?"
"The boy nearest you, I think," was the abort re
ply; then, as if obliged to edd, by way orapology, "I
am very sorry that Mrs. Warren' cannot coins to
day, but she has one of her bad headaches."
"she is s•coming," said gne of the children; "she
says she eposes she must."
Morton pretended nut to hear this 'Perch. He
saw that somethiog;Was wrong in his friend's do

"I shall be sorry for him, if he has, - thought Mor
ton; "lie deserves s pod wife; a better-hearted fel
low never breathed."
SATURDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 16,18®3,
The roam was partially darkened, and on the bed.
In looie sick gown, with dishevelled hair, Inv Mrs.
Warren. Her hand reared no a b , )ttie of cvnphor,
and on the stand at her !Lie was an ominous bowl
of water, with wet eathea in it•
"Juliette, my love, are you ill!" -
"1111 what a question to ask! I tut ,1 you half a

"I am sorry, but I really thought, Janette, At

"110,1 am ours I never Flail want anything to

eome down in dinner; I hare an old friend to dine
with us—Charles Morton, of whom you have so of
ten heard me speak. He has come on purpose to

"G/ George, Cliarley," earl he, snin2tliiiig like
the /lorry Warren of other days, "It dues one miod
to hear your old t, irse laugh again!" An animated
convemstion ensued, and it was some time behire
Mr. Warren remembered that they LW nut yet
Warren's sunshine MA fist vanishing, though
his dinner, it is but juetice to Betty we should say,
was well-cooked; )et his table needed the lady.—
No clean napkins were there; no nice salters and
shiniog spoons graced it;

serving slide it attractive. Betty had no eye 1 - ,4
the fancy-work, But the foul was good, an I there
was an abundance of it; and the gentlemen wculd

Wheu dinner was about Inlf over, Mrs. Warren
made her appeiranea. Wo:king in languidly, .be
took her seat at Ihe head of the tab!e. She still
wore her loose gown, over which she had thrown a
shawl. Her hair was still uncombed. Her eyes
were dull and heavy in their expression, and her .
eyebrows were elevated. She looked as if she felt
miserable. " Ah, Juliette," said Mr. Warren,
slightly, coloring,,"l did not know that you would
feel able to come down. Let me iutroduce you to
al old friend, Mr. Morton."
Mrs. Warren bowed.
"You have been suffering with a headache to-day,
my friend tells me," said Mr. Marton.
"Yes, I suffer nearly all the time," was the ro•
ply; "if it is not one thing, it is another. lam al
"0, no, Juliette, it is some time since pa have
had a bad tura," said her husband.
"Only last week," was her short reply. "Your
memory is not very good on this point. I believe
you think I can help being sick."
Mr. Warren triel to laugh off ttois thrust ; but
there was no heart in IL 'All sociality vanished
with Mrs. Warren's presence, and all peace, too ;
for the children acted worse than ever. Mr. Mor
ton suffered for his friend, and was muoh relieved
when they were again by themselves in the parlor.
He could have forgiven the want of glossy ringlets
and laughing eyes, bat he could not forgive the want
of good humor, in Harry Warren's wife. He felt
as if his friend hid keen taken in ; he pitied him ;
an. Armor than ever was his determination to run
no such hazards himself.
So much at Mr Warren's day had been oneopled

The air of the sick-room, perfumed as it was wilh
cimphor sad timmoois,oppressed the weary men.—
He avid ho would go and send the children to bed.
This was more easily said than done; the ch;ldren
were tired and cross, and full of wants, and Betty
would not help him in the least. PAtience and per-
severance, howei;er, got th• last little urchin into
his nest. " Now go'to steep, bop," said he; "your

• It was after eight o'clock before Mr. Warren had
a ebance to eat any supper. He went to the dining..
room. Hi* tea hal stood uatil it was quite cold ;
his toast was cold, and.* dim light cast a jaundiced
light over his uninviting repast. II:, h mover, was

Joliette continued to sob; her husband was silent.
When, at length, they slept, it was with chilled af
fections and heavy hearts, and their shinab!rs were
neither sweet nor refreshing. •
Several sears passed, and Airs. Warren's hetilth
did not iint , rove. She seemed to have made up her
mind that, she must suffer, and that people ought to
pity hig, syd not expect her to di anything. The
sonshine that had once been atJut her vanished; she
spoke at all times io a distressed tone IA voice; a
doleful expression became habitual with her. She
made 130 - exertion wh:ch she could avoid, she shirk-,
esl every care which could be avoided. Mr. War
yen and Betty must, see to things. Now, Betty was
no housekeeper ; she could do bard work, bat not
heed work. She did not understand economy. She •
used up What he had, Without thinking; of to-nicr•

how the two ends should meet. Such management
at home, together with the ir.creasing wants of a
family, required a gned income. Mr. ‘Varren'.4
business gave him a comfortable living, but_ it. was
not quite equal to ailing' up flour-barrels which had
a hole in the bottom. He began to run hs,,hind, and
to become discouraged. lie got into debt, and then,
going on from had to worse, he became completely
disheartened. His family was a drag on him. He
could not tell his wife of his troubles—if ha did, she
only cried, and said, "else was sure she could not
help it ; she did all she could, when' her health was
so poor. She thought he might have more feeling
for her than to complain." He, therefore, formed
his own plans in silence.
One October morning, Airs. Warren awoke with
one of her sick headaches. Finding this to be the
case, she went to sleep again, and it was very late
before she awoke the second lime. Dressing her
self at her leisure, she went to the dining-room.—
' Some cold breakfast stood waiting for her, which
she partook of alone—neither husband nor children
were there. At dinner she met her children, but
not her husband; he had not returned. This pin
coked her a tittle. "He stays," thought she, "just
on purpose, because I are ill. I'll keep out of his
way, I guess, for one while." With this generous
resolve, she took to ber darkened chamber, her cam

Lord and Lady Byron.
A correspondent of the Home Journal oaks tho
editor to state the cause of the rupture between Lord
- arid Lady Byron, and says to do so is no easy tisk .
since Byron himself repeatedly heelers., iv his hit
:tire, that the cause was unknown to him. The
Journal says: •
On the second of January, 1815, Lord Byron, then
in his twenty.seventh year—was united in marriage
with Miss Millbanke. On the" tenth of December,
dam same year, Augusta Ads, their child waltioru.
About six weeks: after, Lady Byron left London
on a visit to her father, in Leicestershire, with the
understanding that her husband would shortly join
her. They parted in kindness, nay in tender affec
tion. On the journey Lady Byron wrote tam an af
fectionate and playful letter. Immediately on ibe
arrival at the paternal mansion, her father wrote to
Lord Byron, to inform him' that his daughter would
return to him no more; and the husband and wife
never met again. At the time of the marriage,
Lord Byron was a man of fashion, and addicted to
the vices of a man of fashion.
lklarrioge was continually recommended to Byron,
as an "antidote" to dissipation. At length be took
the pre f seription—and a bitter dose it proved. - He
proposed to Miss Millbanke, and was refused. They
continued, however, to be on very friendly terms,
and to correspond. He proposed a second time, and
was accepted. His friends protested against Us
choice for two reasons: first, because she was too
"strait-laced," i. e. too good for him; and secondly,
becaush her fortune consisted chiefly in expecta-
tions. Bat, sitting one day with a friend; whets
refusal from an other lady arrived, Byron said:—
"You see that after all, Miss Millbanke is to be the
person—l will write to her." He wrote on the in
stant, end showed the letter to his friend, who, still
remonstrated against his choice, read the letter over
and remarked; "Well, really, this is a very pretty
letter; it is a pity it should not go; I never read •
prettier one." "Then it shall go," said Lord Byron.
did go, and it sealed his fate.
Miss Millbanke was the pattern daughterof a pat
pattern country gentleman. An English country
house, of the pattren acrt, is a place where peace
and plenty, order and - regularity, have taken up their
abode. Life in it goei on in an unvarying room of
duties and delights. From the muter to the nu];
lion, each inhabitant he=, knows, and keeps his piece;
yielding obedience to those above him, requiring
respect and submissionikom those below him. Bat
the yoke is easy and the burthen is light, because
respect is mingled with affection,. and obedience is
rendered with loyalty. Miss Millbanke, as welfare
just observed, was a pattern lady of her class-41r
tnous, discreet, prudent, orderly kind—formed to be
4 wise mother of English children, an admirable
mother of an English home. She was not a wo
man who would see any thing romantic in a liaison,
or any thing interesting in a seizure of furniture by
the sheriff; nor was she a woman who could regard
the glory of the poet as a set off against the tanks
tha man; on the contrary she would consider—.
and rightly consider—that the itossesslon of such
extraordinary talents heightens the turpitude of me
Nine times during 'the year that Lord and Lady
Byronlived together, the sheriff's o fficers seized the
furniture for debt. It was reported about town that
his extravagant lordship had married an heiress,and
his marriage was a signal for creditors to email up
on him in a swarm iritating hint, dismaying her.
Byron was a troublesome man to live slab. Hi.
mood was more changeable than the weather—mel
ancholy, hilarious, peevish, savage, all in a day and
all without apparent cause—and there was= know
ing hew to take him. All this, and primp. mem
Lady Byron had to endure—she who had been all
her life accustomed to a state of things as different
as can be conceived. She bore it, however, alt.& r
as we know, without repining; until transferred to
her own sphere again she remarked the contrast...—.
An affectionate and officious "mamma," horrified
by the tale her daughter brought of "executions,"
probably persuaded her not to return. Byron was
astounded at the newt. His peiuniary difficulties
had reached their utmost, and to use his ow* ho.
